We investigated the effects of symbiotic association between a plant and an arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus (AMF) on the abundance of aboveground foliar-feeding insects that differed in feeding mode and their predator. We examined effects on insect abundance as the result of AMF-related changes in the quality and quantity of plants in the field. The numbers of three insects with different foliar-feeding mode (phloem feeder, chewer, and cell-content feeder) and their generalist predator Orius… CONTINUE READING
